The Government of Navarra has issued a note in which it states that in 1993 BIC did not declare Lines of Race, nor the first delivery of the documentary NO-DO, as published this newspaper yesterday. However, the Ministry of Culture does register it as such. On its website it says verbatim in the section on movable property: "It contains information about the movable property registered in the Register of Assets of Cultural Interest". Between the inscribed appear both. This presence of the films has prompted a parliamentary question by Podemos about the files of both goods.
From the Registry, Movable Property and Archeology service of Navarre they recognize that in Culture they are registered in the inventory BIC and that as such, both Race as that first installment of the NO-DO have a patrimonial protection, which has no other good filmed in Spain.
The processing of Navarre began in 1990, when the Casa-Museo de Arrese building was declared BIC under the category of Monument and a part of the more than 1,200 properties it houses, "of archaeological, sculptural, pictorial and historical character", between Those that contained the objects of the controversy Navarra sent the list to the Ministry of Culture, which decided to include as elements to protect, commented surprised from the Navarre registry.
In his parliamentary question, Unidos Podemos points out the lack of protection over the filmed heritage. Eduardo Maura, Culture spokesman of the group wonders what will happen to the cultural and immaterial legacy of the Franco regime. "Is not it as important or more important than the Valley of the Fallen and the tomb of Franco?" He pointed out to this newspaper.
The most striking of the case is that nobody knows where the two pieces inscribed on the BIC list are and protected by having been inventoried. "We only have the documentation", they tell from Navarra. The BIC declaration happened 25 years ago and the more than 1,200 assets of the Arrese House-Museum were inscribed in the General Inventory of Movable Property, but they have not yet been classified and cataloged, as reported by the Registry to this newspaper. They only have one person for this and other tasks.
Within the general regime there are three levels of protection, "according to the singular relevance of the good," says the law. If, as assured by the Government of Navarra, they were not declared BIC, they are covered by category two, which was granted by the Ministry of Culture at the time of inclusion in the Inventory of Movable Property.
The Ministry of Culture could have refused to include the two assets in the inventory, but in this case decided to endow them with safeguard measures when considering them special goods. That's why the script of Race and the NO-DO are protected by the Historical Heritage Act of 1985. The report that Navarra sent to Cultura clarified that, given the large quantity and diverse quality of the assets that make up the collection, it was decided to include the entire inventory, " later, raise those who stand out for their category to BIC category ".
Officials of the Navarrese registry are surprised of the inclusion: "We sent in 1993 the list with all the goods found in the house and decided to register it, but we do not know why". Next to the house-museum, the Navarrese government declared BIC, as they inform from the Registry to this newspaper, several hundred pieces.
But the protocols and norms have changed a lot in these almost three decades since the opening of the file. With the approval of the Law of Patrimony of Navarre, in 2005, the owners with inventoried goods are obliged to notify the situation of the same, but all the above not. Hence, the technicians of the Government of Navarre assure this newspaper that the libretto Race and the NO-DO "may no longer be in Navarra".
